I met Steven Schwartz at the lowest point in my life, and he treated me with more respect and kindness that I felt I deserved. I was given a harsh sentence by a severe judge from the 48th district court. While the prosecuting attorney and the probation officer's pre-sentencing report recommended a deferred sentence with no record, the judge sentenced me to thirty days in jail. I was using a court appointed attorney at the time, who only spent a few minutes with me prior to my sentencing. I owned my guilt and was making every effort I knew to make recompense, but the judge did not see it that way. She said that I was using my psychological diagnoses and mental problems as excuses, so she used her discretionary power to give me the harshest sentence possible. It was a severe and humiliating punishment.
My sister found Steven Schwartz online, and he came to interview me in jail. It is a painful experience for me to recall, but with Steven's skill, I was able to walk back in to my normal life after a few days' time. Had I been away from work for one more day, my supervisor would have had to let me go per the policy in place for unexcused absences. My livelihood, insurance, and tuition would have been taken from me.
Steven pushed for an emergency re-sentencing hearing, and the judge was amenable to this. It was clear the members of the court revered him as a very knowledgeable and humble individual. Steven is a kind, thoughtful and gracious individual who has the ability to connect with people. Mr. Schwartz is a gifted lawyer, and I hope to give back in kind to others what he has given me.
My fiance was sentenced in 2015 to 30 days in Oakland County Jail for shoplifting. My family and I had expected a much more mild punishment and were stunned by the harshness of the sentence. We immediately started calling lawyers to find someone who would represent my fiance and get her out of jail as soon as possible. Many of the lawyers we called said resentencings were a lost cause and that we had no chance. Some even laughed and told us to reconcile ourselves to the fact that there was nothing we could do. When we called Steve he honestly told us that getting a resentencing was a long shot, but that he would interview my fiance and see if there was a case.
After interviewing my fiance the very next morning, Steve agreed that we had a case and immediately started working with us to develop material that would support a resentencing. Simultaneously, he worked with the court and was able to get a hearing within 72 hours of my fiance being taken to jail. It's worth noting that he did all this just as the court was about to go on an extended holiday break.
The hearing (two days later) only lasted 15 minutes, but when Steve emerged he told us "she's being released immediately." My fiance was back home a couple of hours later, having spent only 3 days in jail rather than 30. Everyone, including the court and jail employees who saw his defense of my fiance, were impressed with his poise and effectiveness in the courtroom. One of the employees even commented that in 16 years of working at the court she had never seen a resentencing argued so convincingly.
Steve is a fantastic lawyer. He knew just what information to pull to convince the judge that my fiance had been sentenced unfairly and deserved a second chance. He's humble and friendly, and helped us navigate our way through an unfamiliar and intimidating experience. He was easy to reach when we needed to talk to him, and returned our calls promptly. His services are affordable and compassionate. In summary, he’s a great lawyer who rescued my finance from a situation that could have destroyed her professional and personal life for many years. Thank you, Steve!
After 3 lawyers told me they would not take the case Steven listened. My sister was sentenced to 30 days in jail for a misdemeanor. Steven put the case together swiftly, visiting my sister in jail within hours of her being there. His attention to detail and professionalism with the court had her released as quickly as possible. Throughout the process we noticed every one in the court respects him. He is a quality person who keeps you informed during the entire process. He understands the law and understands humanity. He knows the system and is respected there. Our entire family is indebted to him. He saved my sister from a dangerous situation, saved her job, and her future.
Steve is one of the best Lawyers. He answered the phone every time I called, was there for every court date, and took the time to answer any and all question I had (even the silly ones). I was going through a divorce and a criminal charge at the same time and he put my mind at ease. If I could rate Steven a 10 I would! He is definitely the lawyer to choose.
Steven Schwartz is by far one of the best lawyers serving the Metro Detroit area. I hired Steve immediately following a criminal matter that could have heavily impacted my future. Steve fought hard for me and my well being before and after our court date. He is a genuine and intelligent man to say the very least who cared for my well being and future throughout the course of my legal matter. He is everything a attorney should be. He was able to keep my record clean and work out an extremely great deal with the court. When it comes to the courtroom, Steve is passionate to say the least and brings a whole new meaning to having a "Pit Bull" for a trial attorney. If anyone is looking for an attorney who will fight tooth and nail to defend you, look no further Mr. Schwartz is worth every dollar that he costs. I would recommend him to anyone in our area that is facing any legal matter, he is the best.
I was charged with an owi and I had a high bac level. Steven helped reduce the charge to impaired, and the high bac charge was dismissed. Happy holidays, and thank you Steven. You're the man!
I pray thanks to the Lord that led me to identify the lawyer Steven Schwartz this man is an angel real respectable, I resorted to when the world went dark at me and I felt shame for iterative same mistake that I did before , and he trusted me after he defended me for the 1st. time and I did promise him that I will not repeat such an act again, and , unfortunately, repeated and I found myself turn to , but I ashamed of myself I lied to him and felt too embarrassed to tell him the truth and he did not want that to embarrasses me with his knowledge of the truth and he told me that I have resorted to him and would not let me down
I don't have enough words to describe how amazing the experience with this lawyer was. He works very hard to make sure that I do have winning results. I could not have asked for better services. From the moment I first called until my case was over, I was at ease that I have made the right choice.
Excellent service and excellent attorney. I am an older gentleman and was having trouble with a civil matter that was causing me a lot of stress. I feel like I have found the perfect Criminal Defense Attorney took care of everything and answered all my questions. He has the knowledge and patience for my visit to this office. From the moment I first called until my case was over, I was at ease that I have made the right choice. I just want to say thank you again for allowing me a piece of mind again.
Thank you again
I contacted Steven Schwartz the day after my arrest, he was very helpful explaining me the situation on a Sunday night. He is always available and quickly responds texts and calls. I was charged with a Felony 3rd degree Fleeing and eluding. First Steven reduced the charges to a misdemeanor attempt to fleeing and eluding 4th degree. But unfortunately with those charges I lost my driving license for 1 year. He moved quickly and on the sentencing date I got the charges reduced to a Misdemeanor Attempt to Resisting and obstructing bringing back my driving privileges. For me I couldn’t find a better Attorney. He is just amazing in all the ways. Recommendable 100 % basically he helped me to keep my job, my driving privileges and got a misdemeanor instead of a felony. I think this last sentence express how I feel.
Attorney Steven Schwartz is Brilliant professional. His representation was great, and I enjoyed working with him, and will recommend him to everyone. The Bar Association should be proud and honored to be associated with him.
Steven Schwartz is an excellent lawyer. From the first call until sentencing he stood next to me and fought for me. I was in custody on New Year’s and a family member found him online and called him right away. This was hours before New Year’s. Steven Schwartz called back right away and took my case. He was in the policy station as soon as possible. He meet with me and comforted me by informing me of my situation. In the following months, he explained everything in detail and prepared a great defense. He always answered my calls and responded to my email, we were always in good communication. If it was not for him, I would have been in a terrible position very likely been incarcerated (since I was charged with a felony offense). Due to his extensive legal knowledge, I was not incarcerated and I received the best possible outcome imaginable for my case. I am very satisfied with his services and would definitely hire him again if necessary.
Steven Schwartz is a professional, courteous, respectful, caring and determined lawyer. He has a sense of humor and comforted my worried mother. He treated us like family. Thank you Steven!
I highly recommend Steven Schwartz to anyone who is involved in a legal matter.
